Ratings for Dr. Karen Woods
More focused on revenue and over treatment since she moved over to the clinic and stopped practicing herself. Service has gone done hill, her PA deals with most of the patients now. Very sad to see things go downhill once she joined with a big practice... All about the $$$ now
I have never taken the time to rate a doctor online, because I am not one to choose a doctor based on online ratings. However, my experience with Dr. Woods was bad enough that it merited an online review. Her treatment of my disease bordered on neglectful. Her nurse, who was in charge of treating me over the phone due to the fact that I could not get an appointment to see Dr Woods in person for over a month even though I was a current (not new) patient of hers suffering from debilitating symptoms, failed to call me back when I left a message asking for help getting the right medication for my symptoms. When the nurse did finally talk to me, after two phone calls from me begging for a response, she seemed rushed, distracted, and unconcerned about my case. She did not remember my previous calls. Dr. Woods' bedside manner also left much to be desired. I am sure she has a great deal of expertise and knowledge, but the way she runs her practice is lacking in the fundamentals of patient care. I experienced her and her staff to be overwhelmed/distracted and impersonal. Needless to say, after a month of agony unable to leave my house due to untreated symptoms from UC, and absolutely no help from Dr Woods or her staff, I happily found a new doctor.
I have seen Dr. Woods about the same problem several times. Each time she is unable to diagnose my problem. Her office staff is rude and disrespectful. They are not helpful. They "cut you off" when you explain symptons. They are not understanding or sympathetic human issues. I am not satisfied with my experience. I will not return.
Dr. Woods is an excellent and caring physician. I was so nervous about my problem and having a procedure. She was patient with me, spent time reviewing all my concerns and past medical issues. I was very happy with my care and have sent many of my friends to her who have likewise been very happy. It is no wonder she is consistantly listed as a Best Doctor in Houston. She deserves it!
